Health Disclosure

We do not give health advice on this blog. Sometime we blog about health issues, but only regarding our personal experiences with our family and animals. Always consult your own doctor, vet, or pediatrician for health advice for your family or animals, as well as before taking any work out advice we have given on this page.

Comment Policy

We love comments! We welcome and encourage all the comments I can get on this site, BUT there are rules that need to be followed and in special circumstances comments will be deleted. This policy applies to our blog’s Facebook page, and other social platforms too.

  • Be kind and be respectful to one another; even if you disagree don’t stoop to ad hominem (personal) attacks
  • Comments deemed to be spam or even questionable spam will be deleted
  • Comments should be relevant to the post topic
  • Comments including vulgar profanity will be deleted, I’m not much of a potty mouth and don’t mind some cussing, but refrain from dropping F-bombs on my blog, thanks!
  • There is no need to COMMENT IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS! We consider this rude and a form of yelling, please just don’t
  • Comments that attack me and my family will not be tolerated and deleted (and likely banned) and you also hereby agree to being on display on my Facebook page
  • Please refrain from spamming your comments full of links. A link to a relevant topic discussed in the blog post is fine, but multiple links will be deleted
  • Sometimes on Facebook our comments section turns into a personal forum to share pseudoscience and banter; please understand this is OUR space and those comments will likely be deleted. We encourage you to use your own pages to have these discussions or take them privately
  • The Old Oaks Ranch reserves the right to ban a user from commenting especially comments deemed to be “trolling” and repetitive
  • The Old Oaks Ranch has a zero tolerance policy for bullying – so play nice or your comments will be deleted and you risk being banned, we will not allow you to use the comments section of my blog as your soapbox
  • The Old Oaks Ranch reserves the right to close comments on blog posts without warning or a reason
  • If you argue with me as a pseudonym, you will be banned—own who you are and we won’t have a problem, we don’t have time to argue with anonymous people
  • Comments with a vegan agenda will be deleted and banned, unfortunately in my goings on we have mostly run into hatred with people who are against all animal agriculture
  • At the end of the day: our blog, our say; if you don’t like it, don’t stay. Hate is not welcome here.
